Less is More

This bride has it all figured out! Rachel and Taylor had a short 4 month engagement, which meant some quick planning had to take place. In lieu of overlooking details due to this tight timeline, Rachel decided she wanted to keep all of the details elegant, but simple. Her simplistic wedding was everything but lackluster! Here's a few of the tips and tricks to show how less truly is more:

  • Compliment Your Venue - instead of overdecorating to compensate for your venue having a different aesthetic than what you want, adjust your design to work with your venue and highlight the parts you love. For Rachel - her Lewis Ginter wedding was centered around the venue's greenery and flowers, so we made that the focal point and worked the other details into the design.
  • Less Fluff - don't crowd your table setting by adding too many details. Keep it clean and airy so that once your guests begin eating (that is the reason they're sitting at a table), they have room for their plates and don't feel cramped.
  • Blend Colors - choose a color scheme that allows you to use several shades. Having several complimentary colors will make your design flow effortlessly and blend your details without the stress of having exact matching colors (especially when you're on a short planning timeline!)
